September 14th: A different way to pray
Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
Prayer has a religious connotation, but in life we all find ourselves hoping and asking for things. In a tough situation, we might sit on the edge of our seat wishing for some outcome. "C'mon, c'mon, c'mon," we say. "Please..." Even if it is to no one in particular, we're still praying. Yet it's so revealing in these moments, when we're privately, powerfully yearning for something, just how nakedly selfish our requests usually are.
We want divine intervention so that our lives will magically be easier. But what about asking for fortitude and strength so you can do what you need to do? What if you sought clarity on what you do control, what is already within your power? You might find your prayers have already been answered.
